DENVER -- Two top supervisors in Colorado and Wyoming face disciplinary actions, including possibly losing their jobs for manipulating records on veterans' wait times.

Ralph Gigliotti, who overseas VA facilities in the Rocky Mountain Region and Cynthia McCormack, the director of the Cheyenne, Wyoming facility are the individuals who possibly will lose their jobs.

Four other employees face suspension, demotion or admonishment, but they were not named in a news release.

An internal audit at the Cheyenne hospital in June found the average wait time for new patients was more than 32 days.

Veterans who spoke with FOX31 Denver applaud the move saying it is about time the system is cleaned up.

U.S. Representative Mike Coffman told FOX31 Denver this is a step in the right direction. "This is the first admission I've seen that they have taken responsibility for their problems and they are moving forward."

He said it is about time that corrupt system is being cleaned up an organization that has failed to meet the obligations of those they are supposed to serve.

Right now the disciplinary actions are only proposals. The six employees still have the ability to appeal the decision.

In other action related to the VA Wednesday, the House approved $16 billion to overall the federal agency.

    Remember the WALTER REED scandal?
    Who was president?
    Who was Secretary of the VA?
    Our ONLY convicted Secretary of the Veteran’s Bureau was Charles Forbes!
    He was sentenced, to Leavenworth, because he absconded with vet money intended for hospitals!
    Harding was president.
    Harding care?
    The ONLY president, that ordered our troops to fire upon our vets, was Herbert Hoover!
    Ever read about the BONUS MARCH?
    Perfectly clear?
